The New Commodore 64

What you are looking at here is an “official” device from Commodore. It is called The New Commodore 64 and is a retro looking C64 with new insides.

The new Commodore 64 features genuine Cherry brand key switches, which provide a feel much better than the original, with a lovely IBM classic mechanism and click sound. The keys are the exact same shape as the original and are color matched. No expense has been spared.

What you get inside isn’t a C64 as such though as it comes with Workbench 5 to boot in to although you can also boot in to a C64 emulator if required. As the new Commodore 64 is PC compatible, it does allow you to easily install a copy of Windows if you so wish. Full details available at CommodoreUSA.

As for the price, that hasn’t been revealed just yet although expect to hear more in the near future (as well as details on the release date).

    Does it come with a retro style monitor ? Any idea when it will become available in Australia ? It actually looks a very nice piece of kit
